Carlos Martí Arís (Barcelona, 1948 - Barcelona 2020) was an architect and full professor at the Departamento de Proyectos Arquitectónicos of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). Graduated in 1972 from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Barcelona (ETSAB), his real school was the editorial office of 2c Construcción de la ciudad, of which he was a founding member and deputy editor from 1972 to 1985.His last research topics included the public place and the contemporary city, the relationship between architecture and cinema and the concept of anonymity in architecture and art in general. In particular, in “Variations of identity. Type in architecture”, the author presents an architectural theory according to which the idea of type is not conceived as a mechanism of reproduction but as astructure of form capable of multiple developments. The present edition includes an introduction by Raphael Moneo, one of the best-known Spanish architects on the international scene, whose lucid look at the past and present underlines the extreme topicality of the contents of a work originally published in 1993.
